New! Thai Hill Tribe Silver!
You've probably noticed that Hill Tribe Silver beads from Thailand are being featured in the current bead magazines. We're really excited to bring you a great selection of these unique, handmade beads. They are made by the Karen Hill Tribe in northern Thailand using traditional tribal methods passed down from generation to generation. Purchasing these items helps sustain a traditional craft and provides the Karen people with a reliable source of income. The silver content in these beads is typically 95-99%, even higher than sterling (92.5%). This higher silver content is softer and therefore easier to shape into all the unique and wonderful styles. On close inspection you will notice that no two pieces are exactly alike, attesting to the handmade nature of these beautiful pieces. To purchase, click on the photo to the right, or go to the Hill Tribes Silver section of our web site.

Q. What are headpins and eyepins for?

A: Headpins and eyepins are often used to create dangles. Headpins are for the very end of a dangle, eyepins for creating a dangle that has another dangle hanging off of it. For either one, though, the technique is the same. Slide the beads on, making sure you have about a quarter inch of wire left at the top. Bend the wire at a 90-degree angle, then grip the very end with the tips of round nose pliers and twist them to create a loop. Open and close the finished loop like you would a jump ring; twist it open, don't undo the loop. These components are a great way to make simple earrings and fancy necklaces and bracelets.
